The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Main Beach Dental

by | Oct 16, 2020 | Orthodontics

Overbites come in different forms.

However, one thing that overbites have in common is the ability to make a person self-conscious about his or her smile.

In severe cases, an overbite may even prove harmful to your health.

Untreated overbites may lead to the following dental problems:

  1. Bottom front teeth may harm the gums above the top front teeth
  2. Speech impediments
  3. May cause jaw problems
  4. Unattractive smile

Children and Teens

Removal of baby teeth – making room for permanent teeth to grow in straight

Growth modification device – helps to better position the jaw

Braces – gradually move the teeth to correct the overbite as well as the jaw

Retainers – used post-braces that help to keep the teeth in the proper place


Braces – move the teeth to fix the overbite

Teeth extraction – dentists try to avoid this but will do this in very severe overbite cases to give the teeth more freedom to move

Surgery – jaw problems for skeletal-type overbite cases can only be corrected with surgery for adults
